    word to the wise : don't attack the spouse / family of a politician, even if that person is in the spotlight. it doesn't work.
    Make sure you get that message to the Right. Michelle Obama has been their Pinata for 4 years now.

    The Boston Herald reported on April 11, 2002:

    The Romneys lived in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., an exclusive suburb outside Detroit, but George Romney, chairman of American Motors Corp., prided himself on not spoiling his children... The children had chores, though they also had a maid, a cook, and a laundress.

    And the maids weren't unseen servants, The Boston Globe reported June 24, 2007 that "Mitt's primary exposure to black people had been his family's beloved housekeeper, Birdie Nailing, and an acquaintance named Sid Barthwell who was the lone black in his Cranbrook senior class."

    And when Romney went on his mission to Paris in the 1960s, he had maids there, too. "In their mission-home living quarters, Romney and McKinnon considered their new responsibilities. The mission home was a four-story mansion, tended to by cooks and housekeepers who needed to be paid," The Washington Post reported December 10, 2007.

    Why do we care that George Romney had a maid, cook and laundress (I've never heard that term before)?

    You never heard the term "laundress"?

    We had an "ironing boy" when I was growing up overseas.

    The point is that the first person to stick up for Mrs Romney... was Michelle Obama.

    Beck is still on radio 3 hours a.day, he has.his own web channel with several different shows, he is having a HUGE event at Cowboys Stadium this summer and he is in the first steps of creating a very large charity movement. I think leaving Fox was one of the best decisions he has ever made.

    Romney was good at restructuring companies. Downsizing, right sizing, sellin off divisions and assets.. to make the core company stronger, boost stock prices and increase cash.

    Perhaps it stems from people saying that Ann Romney worked hard as a SAHM. I get the feeling that she only had to stay home with the kids when she wanted to, not day-in-and-day out.

    I mean, come on, most of us know some wealthy people. The ones that I have known put all domestic chores and child rearing individuals on the payroll. The Moms are free to do what they like when they like.

    In all fairness, Ann Romney is old enough to be retired now. It's all water under the bridge and doesn't need to be said. It's a far different world that the rich live in. Almost fantasy.

    Indeed, he sacrificed the dignity of his wife so that they may have dignity.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith
